I am a yoga teacher based in Glendale, AZ. Growing up in rural
Indiana, I wasn't familiar with yoga. I was first introduced to asana
(the physical practice) at the age of 18 and was immediately
captivated. I later learned about the other facets of yoga besides the physical and realized I had been practicing long before my first class. I was continually drawn to this path, and became a witness to how it was transforming me. Noticing the expansion it produced, I felt the duty to share it with others.
At the time, I was completing a bachelor's degree in Health Sciences from Indiana University, where I took as many yoga electives as I could. After graduating, I followed the still Voice that called me to Los Angeles, CA. I began the first step of my teaching journey by completing a 200 hr RYT training at Love Yoga in Venice, CA, followed by a mentorship with Sian Gordon Fujikawa. I then continued my studies with Alex Nashton, completing a yoga nidra teacher training, as well as a breathwork, meditation, and neuroscience training, then subsequently receiving RPYT certification through Ma Yoga to teach prenatal yoga.
My intention as a teacher is to help others:
spark curiosity within the internal world, external world, and beyond
calm the waves of thought for clarity
connect with Spirit
draw nearer to alignment through embodiment
practice non-attachment by becoming an observer to the polarities of life
and create space for essence, receptivity, connection, love, and Oneness
If you're still reading this, I hope our paths cross soon.
